I came across the following task in my book:
They carried/crossed 8,120km in the longest windsurfing journey.
Obviously "crossed" is intended to be the correct choice here, but I have never actually heard the verb used in this way. I'm more used to hearing "..crossed a river..", or "..crossed a road.."
Is it really appropriate to use "crossed" with an exact distance, or would "travelled" or "went" be the correct choice here?
